Hi:

Does anyone know what would be the largest bullet that the .17 HMR could take? I know that a rimefire round cannot be reloaded , just would like to know what the ammo companies could load the .17 HMR up to.

Thanks,

What is the largest Bullet that the .17HMR

They're only loaded in 17gr and 20gr, I wouldn't want a heavier bullet than the 20gr, or it would loose the main characteristic of the 17hmr that we all like and appreciate....high velocity and flat trajectory!

The 17gr. V-max bullet is about the best for the 17HMR I think like quickdtoo said you lose to much of the flat shooting high velocity that the 17HMR is really all about. Shot alot of game with the 17HMR and tried all the ammo and I like the 17gr. V-max the best thought the 20gr. would be the one but its to heavy for the 17 I think. Mag-check
